Suspected gas leak at Tweedale

I have reported a strong smell of gas on Bridgnorth Road (Tweedale) between the Three Furnaces and Brookside Avenue to Transco this evening.

There is a gas sub-station near the bridge closest to Brookside (where the Eastern Primary goes over Bridgnorth road) but the smell doesn't appear to be coming from there.

Transco gave the usual safety advice - no matches, no sparks, no cigarettes anywhere in the area.  I have phoned the Three Furnaces and made them aware and they were going to have a word with the smokers outside.

A local Transco engineer is en route as I type.
